Effective with the start of the Fall 2011 semester, County College of Morris (CCM) now has a new location in Morristown at 30 Schuyler Place in a county-owned building provided by the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
Leaving behind its location at Headquarters Plaza, CCM in Morristown is now leasing the second floor of 30 Schuyler Place from the county for $1 a year.
“This new location not only will provide CCM with significant cost savings, but also will allow the college to better serve Morristown area residents and businesses,” noted Dr. Edward J. Yaw, CCM president. “The renovated space with its state-of-the art teaching facilities means CCM is now even better positioned to offer the area innovative access to the college’s high quality credit, certificate and continuing education programs.”
“Noting that rent was a large item in the college's budget, the freeholders and college trustees agreed that this savings could be better used to mitigate potential tuition increases for students,” said Freeholder Gene Feyl. “Economically, this makes a good deal of sense.”
Morris County and CCM are sharing the cost of the relocation with the county paying for renovations and the college for all furnishings and equipment. The new facility consists of four general purpose classrooms with the latest in instructional equipment, two computer labs and a student lounge.
The building also features onsite parking in a garage accessible from Bank Street/U.S. 202 South. As at its previous location, parking is free-of-charge for students.
“The new location includes all the latest in available instructional equipment and is a very warm, welcoming and accessible location for students to take CCM classes,” noted Charles Lamb, director of the CCM in Morristown location.
The new location is located one block from the Morristown Green and within easy access of the Morristown train station. Also located in the building are Morris County Legal Aid, the office of Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen, the Morris County Information Technology and Transportation divisions, and the Unemployment Services Department.
